The Company of Bioloists’ Workshops provide leading experts and early-career researchers from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds with a stimulating environment for the cross-fertilisation of interdisciplinary ideas. The programmes are carefully developed and are intended to champion the novel techniques and innovations that will underpin important scientific advances.

In November 2019, a Workshop on birth defects is being held with the aim of

dismantling boundaries between developmental biology and clinical birth defects research so that clinical findings can inform our understanding of the processes that construct a human being, which in turn can guide clinicians in order to deliver better care to patients.

Organised by Mustafa Khokha, Karen Liu and John Wallingford, it promises to be a great opportunity for clinical-basic collaboration.

There are around 10 funded places for early-career researchers available – a fantastic opportunity to share your research with leading scientists in an intimate setting.

Deadline for applications: 24 June 2019.
